Maceo was responsible for overseeing the photo and video shoots directed towards national television. If you can remember back that far, Maceo's "hand" was the famous "hand" that was shown in the Home Depot National TV campaigns. He is obviously no stranger to providing customer service and knows the video business well. Maceo decided to start Trotter Videography (formerly Trotter Multimedia) to address the growing need for "quality" cinematic video companies. He addresses this 'niche" by providing personal care and concern and encourages his staff to take a real interest in your video production. Maceo has "Master" status with NLE editing software such as Adobe Premier Pro (all versions) Adobe After Effects, and Adobe Audition. He has learned and trained through Video University and has been work shopped and critiqued by some of the most prominent filmmakers in the wedding industry including Joel Perigrine, John Goolsby, and Dave Williams. Maceo's style of editing is refreshingly elegant and romantic. A native of Richmond California, Maceo has been known to create some of the most emotional and romantic cinematic wedding video films ever seen!
